Myofascial Release

 

The fascial system forms a continuous web throughout the body. Injury to any part of the system can have far-reaching effects on other parts of the body. This is a gentle form of therapy that produces profound effects throughout the body. A basic tenet of Myofascial Release is that no part of the body is separate from the other.

Trigger Point 

A Trigger Point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may trigger pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache.  Trigger point treatment is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release

Issues this treatment heals:

  • Pain commonly thought to be arthritis
  • Unexplained pain in certain body areas
  • Dull body aches
